CFB Heisman Rankings Going Into Week 8
*Editor's Note: Graphic by @SSN_Troy, author is @BlitzCfb
Week 7 was full of great performances across the nation. However, these five players have made great performances look like it is part of their weekly routine.
1. Kenneth Walker III (RB, Michigan State) ↔️
Kenneth Walker III was pretty much shut down by the Indiana defense. The Michigan State offensive line didn’t do him any favors either. Walker still leads the nation in rushing yards which is why he is narrowly still on top of the rankings.
2. Bijan Robinson (RB, Texas) ↔️
Bijan Robinson had 135 rushing yards against a solid Oklahoma State defense. He also had 3 receptions & has been good catching the ball out of the backfield. Robinson had three total touchdowns on Saturday.
3. Bryce Young (QB, Alabama) ↔️
Alabama as a whole had a monster game at Mississippi State. Bryce Young threw for 348 yards & 4 touchdowns. This might be the year of the running back, but don’t count out Bryce Young.
4. Matt Corral (QB, Ole Miss) ↔️
Matt Corral tore up the Tennessee defense through the air & on the ground. Corral really showed his versatility as he threw for 231 yards & ran for 195. He was the teams leading rusher on Saturday. Also, Corral threw only his first pick of the season on Saturday.
5. Kenny Pickett (QB, Pitt) ↔️
Pitt picked up a huge win at Virginia Tech over the weekend. Kenny Pickett continues to use his veteran leadership to guide the Panthers. He accounted for 3 total touchdowns on Saturday, two passing & one rushing.
Other players considered: Brennan Armstrong, Grayson McCall, Desmond Ridder, Sean Tucker
